Obscura Day 2015: Inside the Crucible

Join us for a tour of the Crucible, an industrial arts collective specializing in the more fiery, metal-y art forms.

The Crucible is an industrial arts collective that offers courses in both old world trades and brand new arenas. Here one can take lessons in anything from becoming a blacksmith to how to be a daredevil fire dancing performer.

The collective offers a class schedule like no other, including courses in bicycle building, welding, glass blowing, jewelry, woodworking, blacksmithing, foundry and more. A non-profit educational facility that fosters a collaboration of Arts, Industry and Community through training in the fine and industrial arts, the Crucible promotes creative expression, reuse of materials and innovative design while serving as an accessible arts venue for the general public.

Come and get inspired this Obscura Day on a very special tour of the Crucible's fiery facilities!


Saturday, May 30; 11:00am - 12:00pm
Cost: FREE, but space is limited - please remember to RSVP!
